2 Bedroom+Loft/2 Bath Wonderful Cabin in Big Bear!

Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Welcome to our wonderful cabin in the quiet community of Big Bear City! Our cabin is recent new construction of a classic Big Bear chalet cabin! We NOW have 1,250 sq feet of space for your family to come up and enjoy, when we are not able to! In July 2010 we finished the new en-suite master bath and master suite! We are very excited about this addition to our cabin with a new back deck! This is our second home so we have added many things that the typical 'rental' would not have. WE HAVE CENTRAL HEAT! which most cabins don't have. It's great in the winter!

We find that our cabin is relaxing, and feels just like home. In fact, we have a hard time leaving our cabin, and so will you! We have provided a warm and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Big Bear.

Our alpine chalet has 2 bedrooms + a loft, and now, 2 baths! The downstairs master suite with en-suite bath, has a beautiful custom travertine shower, and a granite double-sink custom vanity. Our upstairs bedroom also has a custom Kentucky Queen log bed. Both of our log beds are equipped with Tempur-Pedic mattresses.

The loft has a twin bed and a double futon. All the beds have nice rustic bedding, comforters, and sheets. We feel that using nice bedding makes staying away from home just that more special.

Our kitchen includes everything you need to cook. Brand new Kenmore appliances make everything easy. We have provided most everything (we think) to be able to put together a fantastic meal in the mountains! Please tell us if we have left anything out..........

The counter tops are tumbled marble tile, and the cabinets are custom red oak. The kitchen table has seating for 4. Out the slider door from the kitchen is our backyard with a custom built deck with a nice b-bque with seating and a picnic table, which provides a great place to relax, especially in the summertime when it's gorgeous outside!

The living room is really comfortable with a leather sofa and an over sized chair to sit and enjoy the fireplace or the 37 inch flat screen TV, complete with BluRay DVD player (bring your BluRays). We also have a DVD library so feel free to enjoy a movie. Of course we have wireless internet! Our pool table will provide hours of fun after the long day hiking or skiing (it is not regulation size but is still a lot of fun)!

We are 10 minutes (around 7 miles) from Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, so enjoy the quiet and relax while still being close enough to enjoy it all! 5 Minutes from the tubing center in Big Bear City. During the summer, there is hiking, biking, and lake activities to enjoy. This is a year-round area so anytime of year is nice. Please enjoy your stay in our quiet cabin!

Please note: We do NOT rent to ANYONE under 30 years old and proof of age is required! We will charge for extra messy guests who don't follow the checkout policies. That's what the extra $140 cleaning charge is for. If you are clean and leave our cabin just as you found it, you will get a refund. Problem past guests have ruined it for good guests but we need to protect our property so it stays nice for everyone!

2 night minimum all year!


Thanks, your hosts and owners, John, Lisa, and Heather!

About Lisa Cherry

Hello there! Heather, Lisa and John (Heather and I are in the picture!) welcome you to our cabin in Big Bear! We just wanted you to know a little more about us. John and I are musicians and own our cabin with our my sister Heather, who lives in TX. We bought our cabin in June 2008, but started looking in February during a really big snow storm! As busy musicians John and I really felt like we needed a getaway for our family in the mountains. Heather and I are skiers and love going to Snow Summit! During March of the 2010 ski-season we both learned how to snowboard, very brave of us.! I think I am still sore! We all love hiking the trails up here and look forward to more wonderful times, winter or summer!

Lisa Cherry purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Lisa Cherry chose Big Bear

We thought the location of our cabin was ideal in a quiet area but close enough to skiing and hiking but away from the party life of Big Bear central. It was perfect for us.

What makes this cabin unique

There are alot of properties around but our cabin is simply put, NEW and one of a kind! We offer all the amenities of a 5 star resort but at a bargain price. You won't find many cabins like ours, especially with all the neat touches that we feel make it just like home, or even better!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful stay!!! The cabin was like new and completely modern inside and provided everything we needed. The beds were super comfortable too!! It was a short drive to the trails and village and Lisa was wonderful to deal with and extremely responsive. I highly recommend and would book again in a heartbeat.

Great Experience! Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two boys stayed the weekend at this Cabin. One of the main reasons we chose this home was due to the A/C in the summertime. The first floor ended up reminding cool throughout our visit, but we did need to utilize the mobile unit upstairs, and it kept two rooms pretty cool.

Our family really enjoyed the pool table, and the kids played every chance they got. Kitchen was setup nicely and we used it for every meal. Backyard was convenient as we used it for star gazing since our telescope was on-hand.

We had some minor issues like towels and an empty propane tank which could have given this review a four, but Lisa and her team were all over getting things corrected immediately. Overall we had a good time and would definitely rent again.

Cute and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had such an amazing time at the Alpine Chalet! It was our little weekend get away and it was well worth the stay! Lisa was very accommodating and was informative with her instructions and directions. She responds fast to her e-mails so if you have any issues at all don't hesitate to email her. Our driveway was freshly plowed after the big storm and I couldn't thank her enough for doing that because our neighbor who rented the cabin next door had to manually shovel 2 feet of snow out driveway themselves! (Thanks again!) The house was clean and well kept, the heater worked perfectly. Ill definitely be back considering the price of her cabin and the location! Thanks Lisa!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Alpine Chalet. The cabin was warm, cozy, and very clean. It was such a welcome respite to check into the house after going through almost 6 hours of heavy traffic from the Los Angeles area. The kitchen was well-stocked and all amenities functioned properly. Lisa was always responsive to any question we had. I wish all vacation rentals were like the Alpine Chalet. Thanks again for everything!
